Sorry, Cross-stick. I'm trying to think of a commercial release that you'd know... Elvis Costello's "Watching the Detectives" has Cross-sticks through-out the whole tune, with snare fills like machine-gun bursts in between the lyrics. This would be a good place to use parameter modulation. I always want the cross-stick to be full-sounding, but the same EQ rarely works for the snare sound. A full snare hit is much louder than a cross-stick, so you can use the volume difference (amplitude) to trigger the change in the EQ setting.
